Menu Plan Monday | Back on Schedule

I plan my family's dinners in five week blocks to maximize my savings at the grocery store and minimize my stress at dinner time. You can read more about my strategy here in my Q&A post here.

I also answered several more questions about how I plan my big ol' menus and how I shop for them.  For more Q&A (because you're just dying to know, right?), click here.

Spring break is over for my two oldest; they're back at school today and this week we'll be getting into the groove of our spring schedule which is loaded with t-ball and softball practices and games. And the month of May is coming up fast, which for our family is always super busy every weekend. I think May is just one of *those* months - whew!

I'm keeping our menus easy during this busy season....and I'm giving myself the flexibility to change things from my original 5 Week Plan as I look ahead each week. It seems like new events/commitments/spring chores pop up daily, leaving me little time to think about dinner. Having a master menu plan gives me the ability to move things around as needed.

Here's what's cooking this week!
